lyrics

In the beginning
There was Thomas
A hopeful boy
His world full of promise
Oh, Thomas.

In the beginning
Here was Thomas
A lonesome man
His world without solace
Oh, Thomas.

And in the beginning
There was Thomas
An unmemorable man—with a swollen heart
His eyes held wide

Though closed by a blind optimism

And this is Thomas.
And this is Thomas.
And this is Thomas.

He sleeps too much—
These dreams of fire and flames,
Pulling apart one piece at a time.

His world comes down—
With buildings cracked, and pavement split,
A deep roar off in the distance.

Dogs bark too loud—
Growing louder, more urgent.
They seem to melt into human cries.

He snaps awake—
In a pool of his own sweat,
Dogs bark in the distance.

Just briefly lost—
His world comes together.
"What a day. What a lovely day” he says.

Just briefly lost—
His world comes together.
"What a day. What a lovely day” he says.

Thomas steps out into the wide world.
Thomas is lost out in the wide world.
Thomas meets his fate out in the wide world.

The sky,
The sound,
The smell,
The color—

It’s all familiar.
It’s all familiar.

His fear,
Creeps up,
Behind,
His throat—

It’s all familiar.
It’s all familiar.

His dreams,
Have leaked,
Right through,
His head.

His dreams,
Have leaked,
Right through,
His head.

And his eyes are locked onto another’s.

Thomas stops dead in his tracks.
Thomas feels his soul corrupted.
Thomas is dead on his feet.

Thomas, poor Thomas.
